Fire Ring Installation

Celebrate National Public Lands Day by Installing Fire Rings on the BTNF!


We’re celebrating our favorite piece of public land—the BTNF—on National Public Lands Day by installing fire rings at Curtis Canyon. Saturday, September 23 we’re looking for volunteers to help us and BTNF staff install 12 stainless steel rings at Curtis; drink and eat s’mores; and share time with us outside. Additionally, there are 2 existing fire rings at Curtis that need to be fixed. Along with drinks and s’mores, we’ll also provide all necessary tools to volunteers. Per USDA Forest Service regulations, volunteers need to wear pants and closed toe shoes. Party hats are optional. We recommend bringing a pair of work gloves.

With the installation of these fire rings, we will meet our goal to have a fire ring at EVERY SINGLE designated campsite at Curtis Canyon.

If you’re available and interested in volunteering, please email program coordinator Jennifer Ricupero at jennifer at She will provide additional information, including about where and when to meet and whether you should carpool.

We acknowledge with respect that our facilities are situated on the aboriginal land of the Shoshone Bannock. Eastern Shoshone. Northern Arapaho. Crow. Assiniboine. Sioux. Gros Ventre. Nez Perce.
